APVMA in Armidale: Relocation strategy

The government is developing a Centre of Agricultural Excellence at the University of New England to drive growth in agricultural productivity and deliver substantial economic benefits to regional Australia, noting that the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) will be part of that Centre of Excellence.

This relocation strategy outlines the broad activities needed to efficiently transfer APVMA functions from Canberra to Armidale. This relocation strategy is focussed on what needs to happen to move the APVMA, while minimising potential adverse issues during the transition, and to maximise capacity when it operates from Armidale. The detailed planning and scheduling of a transition will be carried out during Phase 1 of the project.
